So if you are anything like me, then you are always looking for Kindergarten Word Work Ideas for the classroom. Today I am happy to share 25+ different word work ideas that I have found through various blogs and tpt and they are all FREE!
Last year was the first year that I implemented the Sisters Daily 5 into my classroom and I fell in love with it. One of the components or stations/centers of Daily 5 is word work. While I love Daily 5, I realize that not everyone can or wants to use this structure, but this post is still for you! Word work can and should be used by all teachers! Essentially, word work in kindergarten is discovering and working with high frequency words, word patterns, word families, and vocabulary. These 25+ ideas that I am sharing today can be used in a variety of settings, whether it is during whole or small group or used as an independent choice for students. Enjoy!
